Hitting the gymnasium for faster results was once upon a time considered to be the frontal idea for the elite obese class. Being on the pedestal in the society was a lucrative advantage for the group, while the fitness ideas that stroke the middle batch were more of natural gains. The scene has undergone a sea change over the years. Now work outs in gymnasiums are offered at mediocre and affordable rates, raising the toll of fitness freaks, surprisingly from every stratum around. Howsoever, those working out at gyms are often not brimmed of the right correct and rightly wrong techniques. I list down a few common mistakes those starters commit, causing downtrodden results.
Myth: Gymnasiums are solely for losing or gaining weight.
The biggest misconception indeed!!! The fresher lot concentrates more on exercises that impress upon the weight, ignoring the strength training ones, that leaves sagging skin on the parts where the mass was dissolved.
Myth: Specific parts’ workouts help losing fat on those particular areas.
Muscle mass comprises of net weight entangled with mass from all over the body. The right combination of cardio, strength and breathing burns out greater calories, aided with faster results, rather than part exercises that lead to strain.
Myth: One difficult training can be compensated with a bit extra of the other.
This mistake is most commonly witnessed in girls. Some work outs, requiring heavy pressures, are the most difficult to be carried out. For example, oblique cycling, ab kin pro can be mastered with regular practice only. Both these trainings offer higher belly bulge reduction and coral abs building respectively. Girls often skip these to higher additional training of lower forms that needs lesser efforts and push to even slower consequences.
Myth: Warm up exercises need not be done.
Be aware!! You are snapping your bones hard. Each time these vital characteristics are skipped, we strike upon our health. Warm ups like stretching reduce possibilities of latent fractures due to strength training and boost up our stamina at the cardio. So next time you hit upon this deadly idea, think twice.
Myth: Flooring exercises are a waste of time.
Wrong!!! Along with cardio and strength, flooring exercises are an added advantage. The best shape of flooring training comes with pilates, an innovative technique that strengthens our muscle cores, trimming down the bulky figures.
Myth: Gymming does not constitute dance and aerobics.
One strength training with alternate cardio provides the best outcomes as per veteran gym hitters. Each time a short span of aerobics is performed, strength training puffs out more calories at ease.
Myth: Why these trainers???
These trainers are a vital necessity in the process. Exercising under a trainer’s supervision provides you with the correct path of work out, while minimizing the chances of accidents. In nutshell, you are nowhere in the gym without them.
Myth: Vigorous or slow, results are just results.
As the saying goes, slow for slow, fast for fast, so is the fact that vigorous training increases heartbeats, dignifying better, faster results. It is also equally important to steadily raise your level, for avoidance of sprain and strain.
Myth: Breathing has no role to play.
Oxygenating the muscles in the correct way burns more fats than expected. Wrong breathing, on the other hand, opposes the force, clashing upon your health.
Myth: Work out is a chore to be performed.
Those readers who think this way will have much lesser chances of enjoying results at the gym. Those who think training in the gymnasium is a course to be completed, are usually highly irregular at presenting themselves at work outs, far way from benefiting themselves. Better look for some other way to contract.
Myth: Faster results mean slim in 4 days!!!
When we chance upon a phrase ‘faster results’, many think it is a matter of a couple of days to lose 10 kgs. But the truth is that regular and consistent training in the right way is a must to burn out fats gradually. The results may differ from person to person, depending on present weight, span of work out, stamina, etc.
All the best!!!
